Went to see what was going on in the Ohio Village. This village is a replica town built in the era of 1890.
During the opening ceremony, the mayor of the town addressed all in attendance out front of the town hall building. During this time, women's sufferage was a major issue (women in the US did not get the right to vote until 1920 - 19th amendment) and during this time they were frequently petitioning governments to pass voting rights laws. Ohio tried to pass amendment 23 to the Ohio Constitution in 1912, but it was not ratified.
I've processed these images in Nik Analog Efex 2 using a "Wet Plate" preset as a starter. I just think the processing works for these images.
